Stay tuned to this space for updates, stories and features of the final round of the ALMS Petit Le Mans from Road Atlanta. The final round has everything to play for with championships on the line and the return of Audi and Peugeot to American soil for the last time in their generation prototypes. Audi took victory in this years 24 Hours of Le Mans but at the first round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup at Silverstone, they had very little for the Peugeot 908’s. Can Audi rebound in Atlanta?
The LMP 2 class is down to two with Patron Highcroft Racing and Muscle Milk Team CytoSport battling for the championship. A reduction in fuel capacity is the biggest change for this class but with Audi and Peugeot participating, they would need more than just fuel for an overall win.
The GT2 class is the most fiercely fought class in ALMS with seventeen entries that represent seven manufacturers, this series is down to the wire. A class win in this category is rewarded with an entry to the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Don’t miss live coverage of the race this Saturday on Speed TV and keep watching here for updates. It should be a very exciting week ahead and I am honored to be covering it for F1B.
